Earth Science Teaching Requirements (Grades 5-12)
The University of Montana                                                                                                  Student ID:

For an endorsement in the major teaching field of Earth Science, a student must complete the requirements for the B.S.
with a major in Geosciences, Earth Science Education option (see the Department of Geosciences and below). Individuals holding a baccalaureate degree must
meet these requirements by completing the courses listed below or demonstrate course equivalency. The Earth Science Teaching major does NOT qualify as a
single field endorsement. NOTE: The demand for teaching in this field is limited. The required second endorsement (either a teaching major or teaching minor)
should be in a field in high demand.
